In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will prepare [a prayer and a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart]. For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil [person] dwells with You (Psalm 5:3-4).
We have a daily choice to make and that is, “live for the Lord or live for the world”. When we begin our morning seeking the face of the Lord, he directs the course of our life. When we begin our morning focused on what the world wants from us, it will sap our strength until we become beaten down and defeated.
In the morning Lord, I set my life before you. I know that you are Holy Righteous and Just. Help me as I face my day to honor you in all my ways. You give me the ultimate control of which direction to take, who I take with me, and the quality workmanship I put into the building of my life. I pray for my family, city, state, and nation today as I know the Devil is hard at work setting up traps to destroy your children. May your good Spirit lead me today and always.
